Mum shares laundry trick for baby clothes - and people can't believe it!

Mum shares laundry trick for baby clothes - and people can't believe it!

When you have children there's always loads to do.

From feeding them and changing them to washing their clothes, a parent's work is never done.

Thankfully there are people among us who are clever enough to come up with sneaky ways to make this work a little easier.

The latest 'hack' to take the internet by storm is so ridiculously simple that people can't believe they never thought to do it themselves.

Shared by a parent on a Facebook group called Nubs & Bumps , the post shows how you can hang out a baby's laundry if you've run out of pegs.

All you have to do is turn a onesie upside down and do the bottom up over the washing line or drying rack, using the poppers/buttons on the piece of clothing.

So far 55,000 people have commented on the post and more than 30,000 have shared it.

Many people have praised the idea in the comments.

One Facebook user said: "Be handy for the washing line outside, saving pegs and won't blow away. I'd never even of thought."

Another wrote: "Apparently what I've been doing for years is a life hack. I just do it because I never have enough pegs."

Some even pointed out that the trick could be used on other items of clothing: "I've been doing this for ages. I also do this with other clothing items that have similar fastenings i.e. dungarees, rompers, baby dresses even bras."

Others weren't impressed by the tip, claiming it would take far too long to do up all the buttons.

"This would literally take so much longer than chucking a peg on each thing," read one of the comments.

But there was a solution for this as well!

Just do up the middle button/popper and you're good to go - and you'd also be saving some space.

If that weren't enough, one mum also revealed another top parenting tip in the comments that she wishes she had known sooner.

She said: "Don't forget why baby grows have the slits at the neck, so you can fold them down over the baby when they're covered in poop, instead of over the head."
